Ingram, John Kells

(1823-1907)
   Ingram was born at the rectory of Temple Carne, County Donegal, Ireland, and graduated from Trinity College in Dublin in 1843, showing considerable promise in both mathematics and classics and as a poet. He helped to found the Dublin Philosophical Society in 1842 and the Dublin Statistical Society in 1847, and was elected a member of the Royal Irish Academy in 1847. His early economic writings dealt mainly with the woefully inadequate Poor Law, which did little to alleviate the distress of Irish people. His writings on economy include Present Position and Prospects of Political Economy (1878) and A History of Political Economy (1888). From 1875 until he died he was a trustee of the National Library of Ireland and was Regius Professor of Greek at Trinity College, Dublin, from 1866 to 1877. He died in Dublin and was buried in Mount Jerome Cemetery. He wrote books on a wide range of topics and had poems published from an early age. His poem "The Memory of the Dead" (the Rebellion of 1798) became the anthem of Irish nationalism. Sonnets and Other Poems By John K. Ingram was published in 1900.
